When Delivery Doesn’t Go As Planned
January 19, 2011 6:02 am | by

One of the great joys of pregnancy is envisioning a beautiful, perfect delivery day. We plan those first moments when we meet our new baby as our family lovingly gathers around. Maybe you wrote out your birth plan, carried it dutifully to your final doctor’s or midwife appointments, and made sure you had extra copies for all the nurses, doulas and attendants by your side for delivery. But life doesn’t always go as planned.   Personally, I’ve had three pregnancies, resulting in four children. The brief version goes like this: singleton, twins, singleton; vaginal delivery, vaginal delivery, c-section, VBAC (vaginal

Cloth Diapers: What do you do when your friends aren’t worried about disposable diaper waste?
January 14, 2011 3:26 pm | by

I received this question on my Facebook page this week. It was posted by Bethany Haid, a Cotton Babies customer and a bumGenius user. Bethany writes:   Jen, I have a friend that said, “So what? I don’t really care about all the waste.” How do you respond to people who are intolerant of cloth diapering or really indifferent about the negative impacts of paper diapers? Just wondering! Bethany’s question is so good that I thought I’d answer it here on the blog rather than let it get lost in the bowels of Facebook.   You have a few choices.

Phil & Ted’s Lobster High Chair
January 14, 2011 6:04 am | by

I’m sure I’m not the only parent who has ever cringed at the sight of the high chairs available at my local restaurants. Let’s face it, a baby wipe is certainly not going to cut it when it comes to that level of dried food grime. At Cotton Babies, we really love the Phil&Ted’s Metoo high chair. It is great because it allows your child to sit at the table with the rest of the family and eliminates the need to use the often dirty high chairs in restaurants. But, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest high

Indoor Winter Entertainment
January 12, 2011 6:01 am | by

Months ago, when we first asked for topics you wanted us to discuss in our Real Mom Talk series indoor winter entertainment was one of the requested topics. Your winters may be long or short, depending on where you live. Regardless of geography or weather, there are occasions where you may be stuck indoors for longer than you (or your children) like. During pregnancy through the toddler and preschool stages, it seems indoor days are more frequent than at other stages of life. Here are a few of my favorite indoor activities that don’t require anything more than a quick

Snow Day Giveaway

In St. Louis, many of our schools are closed for a snow day today. While we were sleeping, the magical white blanket covered the ground and the roads too. But never fear, the Cotton Babies team trekked through the snow to pack your orders and receive your phone calls, our offices are open today!   For our Snow Day giveaway today, we want to know, what is your favorite snow or rain day activity? What activity do you love doing with your little one? Do you love to knit or read? Maybe you love making Bekah’s Peppermint Mocha. Is there

Eric Carle and Reversible Style Robeez
January 7, 2011 6:02 am | by

Looking for a beautiful, yet practical, baby gift? This week at Cotton Babies, some exciting new styles of our popular Robeez soft-soled baby shoes. Cotton Babies staff love the way Robeez cling to feet with the elasticized ankle band and are easy to wash by hand or in a machine.   Connie, grandmother and a Cotton Babies customer, said:   I have used Robeez shoes on both my grandsons and they are the best. They are easy to put on and always stay on. They are soft and comfy… The flexible sole is nice for prewalkers. Keep little feet warm

Jenn’s Thoughts: Pooping Day?
January 6, 2011 5:14 pm | by

Do we have any poop experts who read this blog? If so, I need your help.   We have pooping day in our house. It’s usually a day that we pick Elsie up from the babysitter and find out that she productively filled four diapers that day. Every single child will go at least once, maybe twice, and almost always during dinner. Sometimes, Jimmy and I will have a moment of shared hilarity when the last child finally yells for help wiping their bottom. Other times, like today, it’s not so funny. I’m ready to call the pediatrician and ask
